The article describes the fully self-sustaining undersea vehicle TINRO-1 which is intended for conducting a broad complex of scientific research work in the waters of the continental shelf at depths up to 300m. With the help of it, the exploration of fish accumulations can be conducted. It will be possible to study their behavior and reaction to artificial irritants, to observe the performance of the fishing equipment, to measure water and current characteristics, to survey the bottom structure, and to conduct series of other studies. Also described is the TINRO-2 which is designed for a limited duration of self sufficiency and will be transported to the submerging point on board a mother ship. It also has a considerably smaller displacement and size.
